The TV5 Acoustic show was unfortunately broadcast as 16:9 letterboxed inside a 4:3 display. It's a shame as it is a lovely bit of footage. Digitally recorded from Digital source (but not stream cap) it should be an upgrade for some of you.

All The Young Dudes from the IOW Festival was originally broadcast in 4:3. This one from last years coverage was in 16:9 and is also a stream cap. I know of the really nice US version from HD but for now this is the best of the PAL footage that I have.

The Hurricane coverage was recieved in trade but unfortunately, the audio sync was a long way out. I've done my best to get it somewhat nearer. Picture quality is very nice indeed but due to the high bitrate AC3 audio, you may need to up the volume control for this one. The combined bitrate is too high for fully compliant DVD spec. It works fine for me but if in doubt try a rewriteable first.
